Inconsistent outing in loss
Herbert completed 28 of 44 attempts for 303 yards and two touchdowns to go along with two interceptions in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Broncos. He also led the team in rushing with 36 yards on four carries.
Fantasy managers will be happy enough with Herbert's performance, but much of his production came in junk time, and a a poorly thrown checkdown to Austin Ekeler in the fourth quarter bounced off the running back's hands and turned into a game-sealing pick six. That wasn't the only bad throw for the 23-year-old, as Herbert also made an uncharacteristically bad throw with the game within reach to begin the fourth, missing Jared Cook on a red-zone throw that turned into an interception and helped turn the momentum in favor of the Broncos. Herbert now has thrown an interception in seven games this season and is dangerously on pace to exceed his interception figure (10) from last season.
